2012 NBA Free Agents: Who do we sign?
 
A list of the 2012 NBA Free agents:

Here we list the 2012 class position by position, followed by their 2011-12 salary. Also, there is the status of the free agent (unrestricted or restricted) and whether or not their free agency is dependent on any kind of option. Players marked with an asterisk are not on rookie scale contracts (for former first-round picks) but are eligible for restricted free agency as a player with three years or less of NBA experience. Players finishing their rookie scale contracts are marked as restricted until decided otherwise and their Qualifying Offer is listed. Teams needed to officially issue that Offer by June 30, 2012, to make the player restricted.

For a more detailed explanation of restricted free agency, check out the NBA Salary Cap FAQ.

Lastly, these players are roughly sorted in value, with the presumed most desirable player at the top of each list. Players who play multiple positions are listed where they play most often.

Definition of Options

Player Option – The decision is up to the player. If he invokes the option by June 30th, he is under contract for one more season. If he does nothing, he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Team Option – The decision is up to the team. If the team invokes the option by June 30th, the player is under contract for one more season. If the team does nothing, the player becomes an unrestricted free agent (if the player has three years or less of experience, the team can still then issue him a Qualifying Offer and make him restricted, but this scenario is unlikely).

Early Termination Option – Slightly different from the Player Option, but the decision is up to the player. If he invokes the option by June 30th, he becomes an unrestricted free agent. If he does nothing, he is under contract for the duration of the original deal.

Raptors1995 03-23-2012 05:39 PM

I like Nash, but his loyalty lies with the Suns'. Perhaps he could be had at the right price. Kaman won't be a bad option short term while Valancunas is developing. Gerald Wallace if he opts out.

jeffb 03-23-2012 05:40 PM

My opinion, is we'll see BC going after some of these players:

Steve Nash
Johnny Flynn
Goran Dragic
DJ Augustine
Aaron Brooks
Raymond Felton
OJ Mayo
Nikolas Batum
Michael Pietrus
Courtney Lee
Jeff Green (depending on health)
Eric Gordon (depending on health)


Players i would like to see brought here- Nash, Mayo, Batum, Pietrus, Brooks, Dragic, Lee and if they can be deemed healthy...Green and Gordon would be great but i can't see BC taking a chance on one of them at this juncture.

dfunkie1 03-23-2012 05:49 PM

i don't think it's the best year for cap space to be honest

but i would take any of;

PG - nash, brooks, dragic

SG - mayo, lee, rush

C - asik, r.lopez

aside from nash, i think anything over the mle would be asking a lot for these guys

NLZ 03-23-2012 06:02 PM

Nobody would want Lin?

Someguy again 03-23-2012 06:09 PM

getting courtney lee for a reasonable price would be awesome.

pzabby 03-23-2012 06:09 PM

mayo, gordan, shannon brown, deron, nash, augustine, oden

all players I would like, at the right price of course.

one player i never understand anyone wanting is oden, especially a rebuilding team looking to start climbing in the standings. he's done

Honestly....mehh! Overrated. :mischief:

Admiral 03-23-2012 07:04 PM

if we can guarantee that our team will be good in the next couple years i want steve nash and if possible sign kirk hinrich for cheap as the backup

this


and then trade for a SF and draft a SG.

Windex 03-23-2012 10:15 PM

some players are too expensive or I think they'll stick with their team. Real possibilities for me...
making it simple for BC

PG Goran Dragic
SG Lee
SF Batum
PF Anthony Davis' spot :cookie:
C Asik

dfunkie1 03-23-2012 10:16 PM

i forgot to add george hill to my list. i likes him.

KoolAid 03-23-2012 11:32 PM

Sign Butler:cookie:

Dark Knight 03-23-2012 11:35 PM

I would go for Robin Lopez and OJ Mayo.

Dario 03-24-2012 04:55 AM

If we can't get Nash, get Goran, if we drop our PG's get nash and goran :cookie: Pietrus would be a nice pick up too

OP13 03-24-2012 05:40 AM

Dragic will be a 6.5M-9M guy, would you give him that much? Many teams are excited about him right now, he is playing very well with Lowry out.

EggsToTheBBQ 03-24-2012 07:06 AM

I don't really see BC signing a big name free agent this offseason, but he will probably add a veteran in the front court to replace Magloire and back up JV (or, maybe just resign Magloire, he's only 33 and cheap).

Duncan or Garnett would be great, but I highly doubt that either player would be willing to come to Toronto and come off the bench.

Maybe someone like Nazr Mohammed would be more realistic.

4 yrs $30 mil is the most I would give him. if any team goes over they can have him.

Depends what you call big name FA. But Colangelo going into the final year of his contract will absolutely be making a couple sizeable signings and probably a trade. It's all speculation, but this guy is setting up for a very important summer and I just don't see him being conservative.
